Wallet

From Zelda Wiki, the Zelda encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Wallets are recurring Items in The Legend of Zelda series.[citation needed] They are pieces of gear used to hold currency.

Locations and Uses

The Wallet upgrades can be obtained in any order, unless otherwise specified. Therefore, the first upgrade obtained will always be a medium-sized Wallet, while the next upgrade will be a larger Wallet. The amount of money Link can have on hand is limited by the capacity of the Wallet, so games that feature them often allow them to be upgraded in size; however, several games still keep track of the total money collected for miscellaneous purposes, including that which exceeds the Wallet's capacity.

Ocarina of Time

Wallets in Ocarina of Time are obtained through the House of Skulltula in Kakariko Village. Once Link collects 10 Gold Skulltula Tokens, the first child will be freed from the curse and will give Link the Adult's Wallet as thanks.[1] The Adult's Wallet increases Link's Rupee capacity from 99 to 200. After 30 Gold Skulltula Tokens have been collected, the third son will reward Link with the Giant's Wallet, increasing Link's Rupee capacity yet again to hold 500 Rupees.

Majora's Mask

Link begins with a Wallet capacity of 99 Rupees in Majora's Mask, much like Ocarina of Time. Link can upgrade his Wallet almost instantaneously by visiting the Clock Town Bank in West Clock Town (behind the Clock Tower in South Clock Town in Majora's Mask 3D) and depositing a collective total of 200 Rupees.[2] After doing so, the Banker will give him the Adult Wallet, increasing Link's capacity to 200.[3]

A second Wallet upgrade can be found by collecting all 30 of the Gold Skulltula Spirits in the Oceanside Spider House on the First Day. After doing so, Mutoh's apprentice, who sits atop the unfinished tower in the plaza of South Clock Town, will appear at the entrance to the Spider House and offer Link the Giant Wallet in return for allowing him to take refuge there.[4] The man will also appear on the Second and Final Days, but he will instead offer Purple and Red Rupees respectively. However, in Majora's Mask 3D, the day no longer matters, as the man will now offer the Giant Wallet at any time regardless. The Giant Wallet has a capacity of 500 Rupees, allowing Link to purchase the All-Night Mask from the Curiosity Shop.

Link can store any excess Rupees in the Clock Town Bank to avoid losing them upon playing the Song of Time. It can hold up to 5499 Rupees, but will stop accepting new deposits after 5000.

The Wind Waker

Two Wallet upgrades can be found on the Great Sea in The Wind Waker in either order. One can be found on Outset Island after Link has obtained the Bombs. A giant Boulder in the Fairy Woods conceals the entrance to a Fairy Fountain, where a Great Fairy will reward Link with a new Wallet that allows him to hold 1,000 Rupees.

A second upgrade which allows Link to hold 5,000 Rupees can be found on Northern Fairy Island, from the Great Fairy that rests inside the Fairy Fountain.

In the original version of the game, Link's initial Wallet capacity was 200 Rupees, requiring him to obtain at least one of the Wallet upgrades in order to pay Tingle to decipher the Triforce Charts. In The Wind Waker HD, the starting Wallet capacity is 500 Rupees, making both Wallet upgrades optional.

The Minish Cap

There are three upgrades to the Wallet in The Minish Cap; whichever method Link uses first will increase the Wallet's size from 100 Rupees to 300. The second upgrade will increase the size to 500, and the third and final upgrade will increase the size to 999. These upgrades can be obtained in any order.

The Big Wallet can be purchased from Stockwell's Shop for 80 Rupees[5][6] Another Wallet upgrade can be found from Fusing Kinstones with Mayor Hagen. The other Wallet upgrade is found in the northern part of the Minish Woods. The Great Butterfly Fairy informs Link that she is in need of Rupees and if he offers all of his, she will reveal that she was testing his kindness and returns the favor with an upgrade.[7]

Twilight Princess

Wallet upgrades in Twilight Princess are obtained from Agitha, the princess of the insect kingdom, situated in Hyrule Castle Town. The Big Wallet can be obtained from her by presenting her with one Golden Bug. The Big Wallet allows Link to carry 600 Rupees (1,000 in Twilight Princess HD). The Giant Wallet is obtained after Link becomes a "benefactor of the insect kingdom" by collecting all 24 Golden Bugs and giving them to Agitha.[8] It allows Link to carry 1,000 Rupees (2,000 in Twilight Princess HD).

Twilight Princess HD introduces the Colossal Wallet, which is obtained after completing the Cave of Shadows if Link already owns the Giant Wallet. As its name implies, it offers a greater carrying capacity than the Giant Wallet — up to 9,999 Rupees.

Skyward Sword

An Extra Wallet

In Skyward Sword, Link starts out with the Small Wallet, which holds 300 Rupees. However, Link is able to purchase Extra Wallets, which each hold 300 Rupees, allowing for 900 bonus Rupees on top of Link's current Wallet capacity. Three Extra Wallets are found in Beedle's Airshop for 100 Rupees apiece.

The primary Wallet can be replaced by Wallets of a greater size from Batreaux, a demon who is searching for Gratitude Crystals. With each iteration, the base capacity of the primary Wallet is increased.
